HELLO, Data Empowerment

why do data teams need timextender?

Data is the lifeblood of modern businesses

Data-empowered organizations are


However, data teams are constantly struggling

The results are in.


The "Modern Data Stack" is NOT meeting the needs of modern businesses.

To become data-empowered

organizations require fast access to reliable data for multiple use cases.


To accomplish this, data must be extracted from various source systems, cleaned, consolidated, and curated into reliable data sets for business consumption. Large organizations have many use cases for data, requiring a 3-tier architecture...

DATA LAKE

Data is ingested and stored in it's raw form to be used by data scientists for AI and machine learning as well as feed the subsequent layers.

DATA WAREHOUSE

Data is cleaned and consolidated into a single version of truth to deliver reliable insights to business analysts.

DATA MARTS

Data is curated into a subset of models relevant for business users from different domains (sales, marketing, finance, etc.).

We refer to this as the DATA ESTATE

Surprisingly, these architectures are still commonly built with large teams of experts, using stacks of tools, manual hand-coding, and hand-written documentation over several months or even years.


No wonder 85% of these projects fail.

Ask yourself...

Question Mark

If my company needed a web page quickly, would I code it by hand using HTML and CSS?


Or would I use a modern drag-and-drop website builder?

Question Mark

If my colleagues needed an interactive chart or graph ASAP? Would I code it by hand using python or C#?


Or would you use Excel, Power BI, or Tableau?

Question Mark

So, if data is so important and time-sensitive, why would you hand-code your data estate?

Look, you can build your data estate like it's 1999... But you don't have to.

universal connectivity

lineage & documentation

Instantly generate end-to-end data lineage and documentation to ensure users their data is complete, accurate, and reliable.

Agile, Low-Code

Automatically generate data cleansing and transformation code, allowing for faster, less error-prone development.

intelligent data pipelines

Since all object dependencies are full managed, multiple pipelines are run in parallel and intelligently optimized by learning from past executions

Future-proof

With solutions stored as metadata, best-practice code is be generated specifically for the platform you choose. Allowing you to switch to new modern cloud platforms, without needing to rebuild.

Timextender instances

TimeXtender solutions are built with the components of the data estate in mind. However, we refer to them slightly differently.
